Road Home : Jules Nelson ☆☆☆☆☆ of ☆☆☆☆☆
There are three books in the Shadows of Home series. I read the first some time ago and was impressed with both the characters and simplicity of the story. I have found that books that over complicate sometimes lose their story. In the case of Road home the characters from the first book return and I truly enjoy their interaction.
On of the more compelling positives in this book is the use of time to drive the story and the accuracy of the particular time period. I realize both of these have to do with time, but the book is measured a a slice of time with chapters denoted to give the reader a sense of time passing.
The civil war time period is well written with a focus on the tribulations that most modern readers can only fantasize about. The attention to historical detail and accuracy is not only well written, but a big part of the story.
Without throwing in spoilers let me say simply this is a good addition to the trilogy and I look forward to the third book in the near future.
5 stars for keeping history real!
